Exporting and Importing Cloudera Manager Configuration

You can use the Cloudera Manager API to programmatically export and import a definition of all the entities in your Cloudera Manager-managed deployment—clusters, service, roles, hosts, users and so on. See the Cloudera Manager API documentation on how to manage deployments using the /cm/deployment resource.
